Meet and test drive Scuter at Maker Faire Rome, October 14th-16th

Come and visit Scuter at Maker Faire Rome 2016, held on October 14th-16th at Fiera di Roma, very close to the airport.

We are at Pavilion 5, booth B4. But the exciting news is that between pavilions 5 and 7 we have a test track, so you can drive Scuter for the very first time!

On October the 15th, we’ll share the project in a light talk, at 6:00 pm, pavilion 5 room 8: we would be love to have your feedback and advice!

The appointment with “Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition”once again returns, from 14 to 16 October 2016 at the Fiera di Roma, with 6 pavilions.

100,000 m2 overall with over 55,000 m2 of covered exposition space: nearly three times greater than in 2015. Among the hundreds of surprising projects, some absolute premiers such as: the world’s first magnetic “Wakeskate”; We-Lab, the portable analysis laboratory; Ortuino, the smart, child-size home vegetable garden; the restaurant of the Future and the R.O.M.E. PRIZE of 100 thousand euros.

Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition is promoted by the Chamber of Commerce of Rome and organised by its special Company: Innova Camera. An international event that gathers together in Rome innovation from around the world.700 projects on display, selected from among the 1,500 collected thanks to the various Calls. Also scheduled are hundreds of conferences, seminars and training workshops on crucial and current issues such as home automation, drones and robotics, 3D printing, 4.0 industry, IoT – internet of things, credit, technology applied to transportation vehicles, cuisine and music.

Maker Faire Rome also proposes a series of demo-workshops, i.e. demonstration courses on the application of digital manufacturing for handicraft activities. The objective is to induce the craftsmen to undertake innovation paths, both in the process and product by taking advantage of the growth opportunities arising from the new digital technologies. Specifically, new digital methodologies will be illustrated for the processing of materials (metals and alloys, wood and gold) and their integration with traditional techniques specific to the work of the craftsman.

For visitors, Maker Faire Rome is the unique opportunity to interact – by way of preview – with the innovations that will change life for the better. For makers, entrepreneurs (or aspiring ones) and digital artisans this is the opportunity to meet with internationally established businesses who have chosen the event as the launch platform for their products and their innovations.

Much space has also been dedicated to the young: no less than 8,000 m2 dedicated to children and young people between the ages of 4 and 15 with laboratories organised in a special Kids Area.
